MAL: School Days
Makoto Itou, a student at Sakakino Academy, only notices that Kotonoha Katsura rides the same train as him at the start of their second semester. It’s this small discovery that leads to him falling in love at first sight with her, just as a rumor starts spreading around the academy. The rumor states that if you take a photo of someone you like with your cellphone and keep it hidden, they’ll fall for you.
Makoto’s photo of Kotonoha is soon discovered by Sekai Saionji, his new classmate, who decides to play matchmaker for the both of them. It works and Makoto asks how he can repay her for the help. Sekai kisses him and wishes Makoto good luck on his date before going on her way, leaving him to watch as her train departs.
Thus begins School Days, a high school anime romance drama that quickly takes a turn in an unexpected direction…
